    Dislikes..

    - This site has diluted its original intent and has turned into a general socializing/dating site.

    - No mods in the forums. Too much obvious and veiled spam. Trollish behavior discourages people from participating in interesting discussions.

    - Forum software is too primitive. Advanced filtering, better search, and FAQ would be a good start.

    - Site is not mobile friendly at all.

    - Messaging feature is quite lacking in features/convenience.

    Likes..

    - It's free.

    - Pretty good variety of guys, in terms of age, background, location, etc.

    - The forums, even with its faults.

    Would be nice..

    - If the site owners could organize meetups. This is what Bigmuscle is good at. Doesn't take much. Just book a venue, provide food/drinks/dj.. just enough to make it affordable for everyone to attend. Sponsor/advertisers could also offset some of the costs.

    This is actually pretty solid. I agree with all of it except the "Cat fights and flame wars are entertaining" part... Those things bore me, but I'm probably just not bitchy enough...

    Community Likes:

    1) Many of the 40 year old+ guys are pretty solid and give great perspective via email and often on the posts. I feel like if I email them or comment on their photo, they are confident enough to chat with you without feeling weird about it. They also keep in great shape which is inspiring.
    2)The fitness/health topics, when raised, are really helpful and I've learned a lot.

    Community Dislikes:

    1) I used to feel like RJ represented a cross section of gays, but not anymore. A LOT of the "good guys" started disappearing or deleted their accounts last year. I left for several months and came back . I noticed the decline even more. So have others it appears. I email guys to ask about their cities or something they posted or comment on their photo and I get back nothing. These are guys I'm not even remotely interested in and are hundreds of miles away. Cold shoulder central. A4A and CL have been a better site for me to chat with guys, oddly enough. I just come on here for the blogs now.

    Copy/paste from previous/identical thread...

    1a, Most: There are lots of great people here, and I've met many of them in person.
    1b, Least: There are lots of assholes here, and they make the place intolerable for many newbs looking for a community where they can belong.

    2a, Most: Very well laid-out profile features with easy editing.
    2b, Least: Very confusing quote features if a person doens't have a basic knowledge of HTML and BBCode.

    3. Mobile app. Yeah I know it's been brought up many times before, but RJ is one of the only gay networking site left that does not have a mobile app. This single feature (or lack thereof) will be the death of this site very soon if it doesn't implement it.

    I like the humor, workout tips, & life advice being given by guys that I feel I can relate to more than the majority of guys I generally meet out. My only complaint would be the ones that are " really " my type live nowhere near me, kind of a tease.
